“Flexed and stiff at first sight”: Alaric Garner’s first commercial font release, Mars

It’s not often we get to describe a typeface as fizzing with energy but Mars, the first commercial font release by designer Alaric Garnier released via Paris-based digital type agency Production Type, is exactly that. Surrounded by references to sports and the vitality needed to complete them, Mars is a duo of a typeface: a dynamic one consisting of “a pumped-up extended style and slimmer condensed,” iteration. “Flexed and stiff at first sight,” Mars is a bold typeface with a specimen to match, presented in a jarring combination of red, yellow and blue.
